Question about 1999 Cadillac DeVille

ABS & Stability Engaged coming on

99 Deville 54k original Mi. Head Gaskets replaced by Dealer. Since then I have put 80 miles on car and back in shop 5 times. They replaced 2 wire harnesses and ECBTM. They can't seem to fix it. They have done road tests with Tech 2 in place. Replaced also a wheel bearing and a sensor, don't know why because I have had no howling noise. Getting aggrivated.

This time car at dealers 3 weeks now--need advice- is it time for the BBB

I am having the same problem. cadillac dealership replaced the head gaskets and when i got my car back the abs and traction control lights were on.they said they did nothing to cause this. yeah right!!!!!!!! they have replaced the wiring harness to the wheel speed sensor, still did not help. they said it would be the ECBTM. i am also tired of the classic BOSS HOG garage so never go to Rooster Bush Cadillac in Morganton NC. i also need some honest advice, so if i hear any i will pass it on to you and i hope you will do the same for me.

What's your problem?my 2002 cadillac deville pulls back while driving and the dash board lights up with stability system engaged


You have Malfunction Indicator Lamp lite on your dash,
I assume for some time & ask if you have checked for the
ABS Braking System Codes,since the Stability Light is on

I will assume you have no owners manual & haven't given
much thought to going to a repair shop within a couple of days
of any vehicle issue

Need the codes,then have a shop diagnose that systems problems

Could be a Wheel Speed Sensor,or not

I have a 99 deville w/ 32valve north star engine and i have problems with it over heating i changed the water pump the radiator and thermostat i have no leaks but it still wont stopover heating


It is probably a head gasket issue if you have replaced the thermo and the pump and it still overheats. You probably can drive it 15 minutes or so and then the gauge starts soaring towards overheat shortly there after. Under completely normal driving conditions. Northstar engine's actually don't overheat not from bad head gaskets (they aren't the defect issue) but the inferior bolts holding the heads to the block. The bolts have been found to be pulling out of the Northstar's soft aluminum block(this is the actual problem but it's blamed on the gaskets). Causing spaces between the block, gaskets and the head that allows hot exhaust air to seep into the coolant flow chambers. This why your have coolant bubbling out of the top of the overflow valve under the hood after only short drives. Under normal operation the engine is literally boiling it's own water supply. The head bolt issue is a design flaw by GM and one that leads to a great number of Northstar engines being crippled at well under 100K miles of driving. Only remedy is to have both heads pulled off the engine, the head bolt replaced with new gasket and you're all set. Bad new very labor intensive whcih = a several thousand dollar repair. I had it happen to my 1998 Concourse Deville. I feel your pain.

I want to buy a 99 cadillac deville and I was told it was only a head gasket problem (blown) what other items should I review before purchasing this vehicle. The owner claims she never let the car overheat...


poor choice if purchased. The head bolts tend to break and to have it repaired is very costly for they are slender and long. . A 99 Cadillac is too old for they have many modules operating this vehicle and the shocks themselves run nearly $1000 each. Back off on this deal

My 99 cadillac deville ran hot about 8 months ago i took it to the dealer thay told me that i need a new engine and to drive it for a couple days and see what happen i have been driving it for eight months...


If you have no obvious external coolant leaks then the most likely culprits would be leaking head gaskets or warped heads. I would take the car to an engine rebuilding shop and get a second opinion to the dealer, not to say that they are wrong, but your engine may be salvageable at a cheaper cost and those guys would be better positioned to tell you that. Hope this helps.
